A note from RMACT: We are happy to present the third and final installment of Stephanie G.'s journey to motherhood. We are so thankful to Stephanie for sharing her story with us and we hope it encourages all the moms to be to begin their own path to parenthood. If you have any questions about where to get started, please do not hesitate to reach out to us by calling (203) 956-2265 or visit our website specifically dedicated to single moms to be.  It's crazy how fast life can change in a year... one minute I'm thinking about becoming a mom and the next minute, it's happening. My pregnancy seemed to fly by and before I knew it, my water broke at 39 ½ weeks. After 12 hours of labor, 2 ½ hours of pushing, and an incredible amount of support from my sisters, my son was born. It was such a breathtaking experience. Adding to that, was the fact that I was able to cut the umbilical cord myself - talk about empowering! When I received my son's birth certificate with my name listed as his sole parent, I couldn't help but get emotional. I made my dream of becoming a mom a reality; having my son was the best gift I could have ever received.

A note from RMACT: Last week, we shared the first part of Stephanie G.'s story in which she talked about how she made the decision to pursue the path to motherhood, on her own terms. This week, Stephanie takes us through her journey and details all that her process entailed. Please note that some of the processes and procedures that Stephanie experienced differ from what a patient at RMACT would experience. We applaud Stephanie for making her dream of becoming a mom a reality, something we wish for all our readers.

A note from RMACT: Stephanie G. is a single mother by choice who reached out to RMACT in March of 2018 while we were promoting a Facebook Live event for single moms-to-be. Although Stephanie is not a patient at RMACT, she feels very passionate about being a resource for other women who are trying to decide if single motherhood is a good option for them. Because of her desire to help other moms-to-be, we wanted to share Stephanie's story on Path to Fertility in the hopes that it might help those who are thinking of becoming single moms turn their desire into their reality. Read on for part 1 of Stephanie's 3 part story.
